Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC), the sales and marketing arm of Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology Co. Ltd (TMD), has announced the development of new 10.4-inch and 10.6-inch TFT LCD panels for notebook PC applications, each incorporating an LED backlighting system to provide low-profile, lightweight and low-power consumption features. The new products offer customers a wide selection of LCDs from among seven main screen sizes, from 8.9 inches to 13.3 inches, and pixel resolutions of XGA, WXGA and WXGA+.

Compared to conventional CCFL backlighting system, LED backlighting provides advantages such as reduced thickness, reduced weight, increased brightness and decreased power consumption. In addition, it is Hg-free and RoHS-compliant. It also features lower operating voltages, which provides advantages in the design and safety aspects. LED backlighting system contributes to increased durability against impact and vibration.

In these notebook PC panels, TMD has adopted thinner glass substrates of 0.3mm or less, reduced the number of component parts to the minimum requirement and optimized layout design for weight reduction. These improvements helped reduce overall module thickness to 2.5mm for several products. In addition, certain products in the family have brightness levels up to 300cd/m?.

Foreseeing strong growth in this area, TMD plans to exceed the production of LED-backlit panels by 50 percent in late 2007. Samples of new 10.4-inch and 10.6-inch LCD displays are available at a price of $350 each.
